N is for Negative Notice: Local Rule 2002-4, FLMB

UPDATE - Revised 9/29/2015
The Court has REVISED its Permissive Use of Negative Notice List effective December 7, 2017. The revised list may be viewed on the Court's website or by clicking here.
                                                                                 Negative Notice

Yes, N is for Negative Notice.  I realize this page is really catering to attorneys where I practice, and as such, may not be very useful to others.  This page deals with procedural matters within in the Middle District of Florida only.  

The following is taken from the FLMB Newsletter, Volume 1, Issue 1, (No, not Willow Pond, as in the pic to the left) from Chief Judge Karen S. Jennemann.  This is a newsletter for the Middle District of Florida, and the following should not be used in other bankruptcy districts.  

 Local Rule 2002-4 provides for negative notice as permissible when filing certain pleadings in order to determine if a matter is contested. You must provide at least 21 days for responses unless the list provides otherwise. Check Local Rule 2002-4 for more details on how negative notice works in our district.
